Walsh, Andrew (2009) Information Literacy Assessment: Where do we start? Journal of Librarianship and Information Science, 41 (1). pp. 19-28. ISSN 0961-0006

Interest in developing ways to assess information literacy has been growing for several years. Many librarians have developed their own tools to assess aspects of information literacy and have written articles to share their experiences. This article reviews the literature and offers readers a flavour of the methods being used for assessment: those which are popular within the field and also illustrative examples from some of the case studies found, particularly where they show how reliability and validity of the methods, have been considered. It does not aim to be an exhaustive list of case studies or methods, but a representative sample to act as a “jumping off point” for librarians considering introducing assessment of information literacy into their own institutions.
